Poor Thomas had to do PT at 5am the next morning, and they ran five miles!!! Ugh! Bella and I stayed in bed. And he brought us breakfast!!! What an amazing husband I have!
After a day or two, I was feeling a bit better and we walked around the hotel, shopped a little and ate at the various restaurants. Hotel restaurants are always crazy expensive, but these were off the charts!!! Still, after a month of fast food, we were grateful for real food. We didn't have these lobsters, but it was mighty tempting!!!!
Checking out the area around the hotel.
My two favorites!
Downtown Seoul in the background
As long as Bella had internet, she was happy!
Same for Thomas!
We got to the hotel on Thursday evening (so we basically lost a whole day), but were able to clear everything by Monday afternoon and were picked up for the drive to Camp Humphreys by some soldiers from Thomas' unit. We were all just so tired and Bella slept most of the way.
We really lucked out and were in our apartment by Thursday, and it is furnished with loaner Army furniture. Without a car, we had to take cabs everywhere. They aren't that expensive, but the cost adds up over time. Our very first Saturday, we took a cab to the walk-in gate, and had our first Korean travel adventure!
TONS of restaurants!
Looks like a place for shows.
Bear claw slippers?
Koreans only?? Kind of rude!
Why yes, I am starving as a matter of fact!!
We popped into a convenience store looking for strange new foods!
Drinks in pouches
Chips and snacks
Various flavors of Spam!! They LOVE it!!
Ramen is VERY serious business over here!!!
Venice bakery??? No, not even close, lol!
Want some goat's milk??
Thomas bought these for The Bella!
These looked amazing, but they weren't open yet.
Why serve them cold??? *pouty face*
Battered shrimp and squid
All chicken should be happy!!!
We popped into this small restaurant for some take-out.
SUPER CHEAP prices!!
About 1,100 won to $1
This Santa was a bit dusty, lol!
"Silverware" on the table!
Chopsticks and soup spoons!!!
I think we will pass on the Drunk Bus, lol!
Mexican? In Korea???
Custom leather shoe store!
That was a BIG snake!!
I'm glad it's dead!!!
Spicy squid with rice!
And it was sooooo good!!!!
Bella eating seaweed sheet!
And she liked it!!
Time for our Korean Taste Test!
Pocket Letter treats!!
Thomas is such a sport! The video cut off about half of the items, but I didn't realize it. Oh well. This was a lot of fun to do, and something we plan on doing more of....so stay tuned!!!
